I was happy to sneak a swim in prior to having chemo today (This is cycle #6 which will complete the first round). My vacation was fantastic. The temps were in the 50s and 60s so quite a change from the triple digits here in Houston. It had been raining a lot so all of the waterfalls were flowing. I hiked/walked and kayaked. There was no swimming. My kids got in and splashed in the waves. My husband swam in a full wetsuit and described his experience as the following: First my feet went numb and then my hands after that I could not feel my face so I had to turn over and swim backstroke. When we got to my parents, there was a bald eagle on the island in front of their house (You can't really see it but it is the little white head in the second tallest tree in the second picture) and right before we were leaving, there was a tall ship going by in front of my parents house.

    It is on the tip of the Keweenaw Penisula in the Upper Penisula of Michigan on Lake Superior in a very small town named Eagle Harbor.
